Bruno Velazquez writes :-I was fortunate enough to be interviewed for a spanish language website similar to Kotaku called Niubie. If you know how to read in spanish and would like to check the interview out then please follow this link. For everyone else I would like to share the interview translated in english. I hope you guys enjoy it:
- Bruno, can you tell us who you are and what is your typical day like being lead in-game animator in Sony?
My name is Bruno Velazquez and I the Lead in-game animator for God of War3. I have always had a passion for animation and video games and I feel lucky to have the chance to be involved in both at the same time. My place of birth was Mexico City and I moved to the United States when I was 12. I’ve been working in the game industry as an animator since 2002 and some of the titles that I’ve worked on include Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks and God of War 2.
A typical day at Sony is mostly divided into half my day involved in meetings and supervising other animators and the other half doing my actual animation work. It is quite challenging since we have a large group of animators. I am also responsible for animating Kratos so I need to make sure that I do the character justice with my work.

El animator has asked which things you voted for in the GOW 3 survey and why..so every one go HERE and let him knw why.
Kratos is angry. Scratch that - Kratos is the most furious, hate-filled man in the world of games. That's why you see him here, tearing the head off sun god, Helios.
What with Ares tricking him into killing his own family, Zeus destroying his home town of Sparta and other gods attempting to murder him on numerous occasions, it's easy to see why God Of War's balding lead has a bee in his bonnet.
In GOW3, Kratos carries on from where the second game left off. Having fought Zeus and lost his heavenly guardian, Athena, Kratos is determined to bring down the Pantheon of gods that have made his life a misery from the heights of Mount Olympus.
But first he has to get there. That's why he's enlisted the help of the Titans - skyscraper-sized beings enslaved by the gods after a brutal war between the two for control of earth.
It flies in the face of established Greek myth, but authentic license aside, the beauty of the God Of War games is that they never do things needlessly. Everything has a place or a function. However brutal.
Why is Kratos tearing off Helios' head? So he can use it as a fleshy lantern later in the game, to pick his way through the darker parts of Mount Olympus. Obviously. What you can't see here is how brutal this looks in-game, thanks to GOW3's 'velcro-tear' injury system. You can see Helios' neck strain, flesh rip and sinews stretch before his head pops off. Lovely.
1. The blades are back
The Blades of Chaos (Athena's Blades in GOW2) return with a host of new applications. The most interesting new move is the ability to yank enemies towards you for further pummelling, or swing around larger foes to attack from the side or rear as seen in the centaur battle in the trailer.
The huge, lion-head gauntlets revealed in the trailer are called Cestus, and they're inspired by the Gauntlet of Zeus that Kratos picks up in his PSP outing, Chains of Olympus. A meatier weapon than the Blades, their primary purpose is to knock back and stun waves of enemies, who can then be finished off with a stylish flurry from one of the game's other armaments.
In the trailer, they're used to smash chains binding the titan to Mount Olympus, causing the 'level' to flip 90˚. Sony have confirmed there are four main weapons, and that you can change between them in real-time by pressing the appropriate button on the D-pad.
Finally, Kratos has picked up a bow with flaming arrows to finish grunts off at a distance, and with any luck, light up any wooded scenery.
2. You get to ride a Titan
The majority of the game takes place on the back of Empire State Building-sized Titan, Gaia. As she climbs Olympus, Kratos will help out by removing various obstacles in her way and killing the creatures that land on her back.
To give you an idea of how huge Gaia is, the development team have told us that the Medusa stage from God Of War 2 would just about fit into the palm of her hand... The fact that you're riding on something's back means your environment can change quickly.
Say you're butchering centaurs on her arm - if she twists 90, you're suddenly struggling to keep your feet, plus fighting not to lose your lunch...

Sony surveyed potential God of War III fans this week about what they'd like to see in a collector's edition for the PlayStation 3 sequel, including repackaging the first two games on Blu-ray.
That would almost certainly indicate that PlayStation 2 games would be playable on the PlayStation 3, a backwards compatibility option that the most recent PS3 configurations don't offer. And that would be just about the greatest thing since in-game text chat to hit the console.
Not so fast, Sony Computer Entertainment reps say. The console maker is not announcing updated PS2 support just yet.
"It is simply a marketing survey. The goal of it is to do focus group testing," SCEA reps told Kotaku. "We're just trying to find out what would resonate with the God of War community."
